“Fantastic apartment in great location”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

We have stayed in Benalmadena several times but this has to be the best location in a wonderful apartment. Roof top pool is not too busy and big enough for a swim, enough sunbeds for everyone.

Close to loads of restaurants but no noise travels to apartment.

Apartment itself is great size. There was 3 of us but would easily have taken 6 without feeling cramped. Kitchen has everything if you want to eat in with lovely dining area outside.

Highly recommend this apartment.

I am very pleased that you all enjoyed your holiday in our apartment. It is in an ideal location, next to the beach and in the marina.

“Shame about the smell!”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Pictures of the property are very accurate, views from the front facing balcony are fantastic, although on a very busy road right in front of the marina entrance and the spanish love tooting their cars horns! Pool area is fantastic too, no problem at all getting sunbeds, no loud music allowed, or balls, so very relaxing. The second balcony is described as being sunny, but it is not, but it is cooler than the front one as that gets the sun all day, as the other reviewer described the location is one of the best! beach on your doorstep, marina just around the corner, supermarket a couple of minutes away.
Now for the poorer points, no one greeted us on arrival, which was before 10pm, so not that late, we were given the keys by the taxi driver who we booked via the owner and recommended to book with, the taxi service was fine, but you would be just as well getting your own from the airport and maybe cheaper too! Twin bedroom balcony door was broken, so had to keep the external shutters down for the duration of our stay, and although reported, it was never fixed. Bedding in the double room was pretty thin/worn sheets, and although towels are provided, these too have seen better days, apartment will only be cleaned if you pay for it. Tried washing towels, but they came out the machine soaking and even in 40 degrees heat took two days to dry.
It would have been nice to have a welcome brochure with the wi-fi passwords, tv instructions, instructions for the aircon etc printed in it.
The worst thing though was the smell in the apartment! It was liked boiled cabbage mixed with sewage! Rancid, although it did go when back and front doors were opened. It was really bad when you first walk in, peuk!
All in all, the four of us staying had a fantastic holiday, but the apartment is tired, and needs a bit of love! We have stayed in a better apartments so we were maybe over critical, don't let this review put you off if you want a great central location it's fantastic, just the little things make a difference!

The apartment has 3 balconies, two facing south with plenty of sun and the 3rd. one to the rear is only an area for hanging out the washing and storing cleaning tools. It is not advertised as 'having sun'.
These clients arrived late in the evening and the organised transfer from the airport includes a key service which the clients did not pay extra for.
The twin bedroom balcony door has now been rectified and locks perfectly.
The bedding and towels have been replaced with good quality products.
There is a new washing machine and also a new cooker in the apartment.
The apartment is thoroughly cleaned before clients arrived and cleaned when they leave.
Wifi instructions are printed out and on the hall table.
The TV is very simple to use with just one button to change from Spanish to English speaking channels. Clients are shown how to use it when they arrive.
The smell at the time was from the marina. Occasionally this happens when the wind is blowing inland towards the marina but soon dissipates.
The apartment is in the best location in Benalmadena and is well equipped for an enjoyable stay.

We did not stay in this apartment because it was so dirty. We left as soon as we arrived and we received a full refund plus deposit when we provided evidence.

These clients had arrived from a stay in Marbella and had obviously been offered another property there to use at a reduced rate.
They falsely claimed the apartment was not suitable for them so they could get a refund and use the cheaper property they were offered.

“Fab appartment, great location”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at this appartment. This really is a gem! Very clean, well decorated and very spacious. Yet it's all about LOCATION, LOCATION,LOCATION. The sandy beach is just 20 paces across a quiet road and very well kept. The lovely marina with lots of great shops and a huge choice of restaurants are just around the corner. Good supermarket is a 2 minute walk away. Sealife Centre 2 minute walk. We often walked along the promenade to Torremolinos stopping off at the many bars for a quick refreshment before hitting the shops when we got there. You can easily get the bus to Fuengirola or Malaga as we did and is very cheap.The lovely owner Barbara met us on arrival at the appartment and showed us around.She was at the end of the phone if we needed her ( but we had no need to contact her during our stay). Overall we had a great holiday with our two daughters aged 18 and 20. Would definately come again.
